The Winters farm sheep; Bruce Winter discusses his shelter plantings, his approach to planting and managing young plantings, and how his shelter plantings benefit sheep production. A wide range of species is incorporated into shelter plantings on the farm including native species, low-stature species such as flax and toe toe, poplars and conifers. Home-grown timber has also been used to produce fence posts for use on the farm.
